Monday 1st March

HAPPY SAINT DAVID'S DAY

The first of March is traditionally celebrated as Saint David's day by the people of Wales. Saint David is the Welsh patron saint. On this day, people often wear daffodils as a symbol that commemorates his life.

We hope you enjoyed some time in the sunshine this weekend. Spring is just around the corner : ) This is will be your last week of Home Learning and we are so looking forward to seeing you back at school on March the 8th.

In today's assembly we will continue learning about the Christian time of Lent and what this special time of reflection means for us. Our new Maths topic is Perimeter and Area- learning how to find these measurements and how they are different from each other. In English we continue with our character description unit. I hope you learn some WOW words to use in your writing. The Reading focus for the week is another animal theme-  all about chimpanzees. Finally, in Science we will be concluding the unit on electricity which I know you have enjoyed. Have a great day!

ASSEMBLY

What will we need to help us continue on our way? Who can we turn to for support because they offer a listening ear? Who could you recommend to a friend who might be struggling?

READING

Read the text about Chimpanzees. Underline any unfamiliar vocabulary. Can you discover what the new words mean by reading the sentences around them? Or, can you use a search engine to find a definition. Remember, words can have more than one definition. Which one sounds correct for your word?
